Howe Caverns
Howe Caverns is the largest show cave in the Northeast U.S., and is the second most visited natural attraction in the state of New York welcoming 150,000 to 200,000 visitors per year. It was discovered in 1842 and early tours were given from 1843 to 1900. Present day guided tours of its living limestone cave have been conducted for 89 years.

 

The site is located in Schoharie County, on a beautiful mountain side with spectacular views overlooking the Helderberg Plateau. It is conveniently located off Interstate 88 and is approximately 45 minutes from Oneonta and Cooperstown, 45 minutes from Albany, and 2.5 hours north of New York City.
 


A popular family destination and host to school and scout field trips, the property also features Howe High Adventure Park, the Howe Caverns Lodge, the Howe Caverns Motel and the Gemstone Mining Building. The cave tours are open all year with seasonal days and hours, with the Howe High Adventure Park operating Memorial Day to Labor Day. Special expeditions such as Lantern Tours, Adventure Tours and Family Flashlight Tours are popular activities, and in 2015 Howe Caverns opened the Signature Rock Discovery Tour taking visitors behind the mysterious dam doors and the limestone dam that mark the end of the Traditional Tour of the caverns for the first time in over 100 years. 


900-foot zip-lining course also lets riders take in the Caverns High Adventure park from above ground, and stops at four towers.
